Summary: Easy to fit into a small space, controls easy to use (once you've identified them). Only problem, can't read the tape control buttons unless you're at eye level with them - but they're in the same place as every other tape player so...
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy Controls, Easy To Set Up
Summary: I did extensive research for this system, it was vital to have a cassette player. I returned two other units prior to purchasing this--my husband & I have a vast collection of cassettes tapes from my church-preachers long past,as well as music I have enjoyed over the years. I was going to invest in a system which would have allowed me to convert the cassettes into CD's-however, I just don't have the time.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy Controls, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound, Powerful
Sony CMT EH15: A sound system for the past and the future
4 November 2012
Summary: When the old ghetto blaster I've been using to listen to CDs and cassettes died, I began to look around for a replacement. I'm of the generation which has seen recorded media move from ancient 78s played on a radiogram (bet not many of you remember those monstrosities), through the vinyl, cassette and CD eras to the age of the MP3 player and downloaded music, all of which were initially hailed as the next big thing.
Pros: Plays cassettes, CDs and MP3 files. Also has a radio. Good sound quality
Cons: Radio may pick up external interference. No record facility.
Summary: We bought one for our bedroom which is quite small and its pretty good, although it doesn't sound as good when played in a larger room. One of the speakers was faulty when we first bought it but after taking it back and replacing it the new one works just fine. It has 2 x 5 watt speakers, programmable CD player, a single cassette deck, fm/am and a digital tuner. CD player has all standard functions, shuffle, repeat etc.
Sony CMT EH15: Proof the CD players still sound good!
8 April 2010
Summary: I bought this little system from Argos last November. I know it's wise to shop around and listen to a system like this prior to purchase - but I was drawing a blank: Most hi-fi systems these days have shunned compact discs in favour of streaming media and MP3 playback, and it was a struggle to find a system which could play CDs for under £100.
Pros: It plays CDs. Looks good.
Cons: Remote control has too many (illogical) functions
Summary: I was looking for a system which while compromising on sound quality due to the cheap price, would still offer some semblance of sound quality. Eventually I chose this system based upon the design as it looks attractive and sleek and being a micro system means it will not present any issues with lack of space. So what features does the system offer?
Summary: The Sony CMT EH15 stereo system is a fairly hefty 'desktop' stereo system at around 7kg in weight. It comes with two speakers (5W) and a base unit and the appropriate cabling to connect the 3. I bought mine around 6 months ago, and in this time have had a few issues with it. Firstly, the tape deck - now, most of us don't use tapes these days. But when I do, I'd like them to be able to be removed again!
